LOS ANGELES (AP) - Darren Collison scored 19 of his 21 points in the first half and had seven assists in his second start at point guard since Chris Paul's injury, leading the Los Angeles Clippers to a 101-81 rout of the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
Paul, who separated his right shoulder in Friday's win at Dallas and is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks, sat behind the Clippers' bench in a suit and tie while Collison orchestrated things without a hitch against the last-place team in the Southeast Division.
The Clippers enjoyed one of their best defensive efforts of the season, after surrendering 70 first-half points in each of their previous two games against Dallas and San Antonio - both on the road.
